Working With Children

For a guidance on the WWC requirements relevant to each state or territory, please follow the links below.

The Working with Children Check (WWC Check) is a comprehensive criminal record check for certain people in child-related work. The WWC Check aims to increase the safety of children in our community by helping to prevent people who have a criminal history that indicates they may harm children from working with children.

Although Monster Music does not require its Members to meet the relevant statutory requirements by obtaining a WWC Check in order to register on this site, Members may be engaging in unlawful conduct by attempting to provide services without meeting the relevant statutory requirements in their state.
